You can't put a lightning bolt in a box, and neither could you pin down your unpredictable lover. But it was driving you predictably crazy. Your lover missed appointments, couldn't be relied upon.
There were steamy nights and unexpected pleasures, but just as often you were gritting your teeth as your lover let you down, again. Though you were usually found firmly in love's driver's seat, this time your partner had you at a disadvantage. You felt as if you were begging for every scrap of love you got, as if you were addicted to your mate's charms and you just couldn't get enough. So you scolded your lover for transgressions, setting up a cycle where you acted as a parent to a rebellious, unreliable child.You wouldn't have gotten the commitment you craved by squeezing harder. Instead, if you had wanted this to work, you would have had to learn to tread lightly. There was much excitement and breathless joy in your pairing, but it may never have become as reliable as you'd have liked. No matter. With calmness comes tedium, and that was never your partner's scene. You could have chosen to embrace the tumult. Accepted your lover's unpredictable nature. Taken what you could from this lover, and not regretted what you didn't have. There was plenty to enjoy.
